Berry Smoothie

I should call this my brother-in-law’s patented smoothie because I tasted it for the first time when he made it. It’s simple, delicious and healthy, given that there is no added sugar in it. This is perfect on a hot summer’s day and an easy way to make use of berries since they don’t last […]

Carrot Poriyal

This is a very simple and easy to make dish that goes great with chapati and poori. Back when I was in college, my mom used to pack this regularly for lunch along with chapatis since she could prepare it quickly in the busy morning and today, I make this regularly for dinner since it is less time […]

Savory Bread Pudding

I found this recipe in a store booklet and made it for Thanksgiving last year. It served as a delicious accompaniment to the other dishes. It’s perfect to make for a group of people, especially on a festive occasion. You can even play around with the ingredients and use spinach instead of kale or potato instead of […]

Aloo Methi Paratha

My Sister’s Chicken Biryani

I have grown up eating my sister’s food and her chicken biryani is to die for! Growing up, my sister was a vegetarian but would always cook non-vegetarian food for us on Sundays. She would eat the rice in the biryani but not the chicken. While she has crossed over today (!), her biryani has […]

Badam Halwa

I have a big time craze for almonds and almond based desserts. My mother-in-law makes great Badam Halwa and every time we visit India, I put in a request for this yummy treat, and the best part is when she allows me to scrape all the bits stuck to the kadai after the halwa has been […]
